Healthy Acadia is offering a free monthly mindfulness series online via the Zoom platform. Their inaugural event on April 1, which featured Dr. Joshua Ehrlich, chair of the Global Leadership Council, attracted over 100 participants and offered an insightful and provocative exploration of mindfulness techniques to support effective leadership.

The second installment in the series is scheduled for Thursday, May 6. Julie Daigle will offer an opportunity to explore Yoga Nidra, a yoga-based seated/lying down mindfulness practice that combines gentle stretching, a deepening awareness of our internal states, and an opportunity for profound relaxation and release. Daigle brings to this session over 30 years of personal mindfulness practice and certification in several mind-body-spirit modalities, including tai chi and Yoga Nidra.

Pre-registration is required for this free event. Upon registering you’ll receive a confirmation that includes the information needed to join the Zoom session. Register online at
